Meet Patrik– one of our holiday replacements

During the summer months, we have many temporary holiday replacement members of staff working at our various sites. Here we present Patrik Westlin, who is studying Inudstrial economics at Luleå University of Technology, and is working his first summer at BillerudKorsnäs.

Why did you apply to work at BillerudKorsnäs?

"I’m originally from Gävle even though I at the moment study in Luleå. This year I chose to apply for a summer job at BillerudKorsnäs because I wanted to try something other than the steel industry in which I’ve worked before. BillerudKorsnäs was a pretty easy choice as they participated in an event in Luleå where I got to meet representatives from the company. That gave me a good perception of the work place."

What are you working with here?

"I work at the mill in Gävles' quality department, QA, where my main focus is to calibrate and improve the WIS-system at Paper Machine 4. I will also support my colleagues in their day to day work when they're on vacation."

We place great value on new perspectives. During your time here, have you thought of anything that we could do better?

"We could have better communication between the departments. Even though we already communicate with each other, there is always room for improvements."
